It’s safe to say I’ve been a bit lacking recently in the blogging department. Not to turn this into a diary entry, but a few things have happened recently in my life that have pretty much thrown everything into disarray. In the space of a month everything in my life has changed.
And that’s pretty scary. I’ve always been someone that likes to grip on to life with an iron fist. I’m a planner; I like lists, I count my money to the penny and I’m always on time. Suddenly, I no longer have control of… well, anything!
Ever since I can remember I’ve always known exactly where I was going in life. School, college, university, PR job, arts job. Bing bang bong, my life has rolled out to a perfect schedule with minimal hiccups along the way. And I’ve always loved that. Or rather, I’ve always thought that I’ve loved it.
And now I feel as if I’ve come to a cross roads. For the first time in my life, it’s as if I’m in the drivers seat and I can go wherever the hell I want. I can finally focus on just being me and finding out what I truly need and want in life.
Call it an epiphany, call it a cliché… call it whatever. Whatever it is, it’s filled me with this overwhelming sense of excitement and purpose.
Sometimes life throws shit at you. When those moments happen, you have to make the decision. Are you going to wallow and wait for everyone to shower you in pity? Or are you going to turn it into something f**king awesome?
I have chosen the latter.
Here’s to the next chapter.
